PreSchool-Grade 2–A little bear has just returned from visiting Santa at the North Pole. Armed with insider information, he uses the familiar words of this upbeat Christmas standard to warn the children that they had best behave themselves. Readers will find it difficult to keep from bursting into song rather than simply following the text, and Kellogg's fans will relish the colorful, high-energy illustrations. Each page is packed with interesting details as the entire North Pole staff prepares for the big day and the youngsters cease their malicious snowball fights in favor of more constructive behavior–like singing and writing letters to Santa. This pays off in the end, when the gifts they've dreamed of appear beneath the tree. Sure to fuel the fires of anticipation, this visual feast will be most effective as a lap-sit.–L. I.
